- 3 1/2 cups potatoes peeled and diced
- 2 carrots peeled and sliced
- 1 tsp celery seed
- 1/3 cup onion finely chopped
- 3/4 cup cooked ham cubed
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 2 Tbsp chicken bouillon powder
- 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
- 1 tsp ground white or black pepper or to taste
- 5 Tbsp butter
- 5 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
Place the potatoes, carrots, celery seed, onion, ham, chicken broth and water in a stockpot. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then lower the temperature to medium heat and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon powder, salt and pepper.
In a separate, small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour and stir constantly for about 1 minute until it thickens. Slowly stir in all of the milk being careful to not let lumps form. Continue stirring over medium-low heat for about 4 to 5 minutes until the mixture is thick.
Stir the milk mixture into the soup and cook until it is heated all the way through. Serve immediately.
